Speed Modelling Challenge #34 - Christmas Tree Decorations

Speed Modelling Challenge #34 - Christmas Tree Decorations

Postby boofredlay » Fri Dec 10, 2010 1:23 am



So for this modeling challenge we are doing Christmas Tree Decorations.
Candy canes, popcorn strings, bubbly lights or shiny things. Anything one might place on or around a Christmas tree.

After the competition is over a Christmas tree will be provided along with the decorations submitted and we will turn this into a "Render This" thread in the gallery.

The rules:

    - 30 minutes maximum modelling time

    - Unlimited preparation time for thinking, sketching, researching but NOT FOR MODELING

    - Community will vote for favorite submission at competition end

    - Multiple entries are allowed

    - Please provide a Wireframe, an Untextured and a Textured image of your model

    - Please also provide the model as we will compile them with the tree after the comp

    - SketchUp output only

    - Please be considerate to members with slower connections when submitting images

    - Any texturing should be done within the 30 minutes

    - As enthusiastic as some of you are about rendering, kindly refrain from posting any renderings in the gallery as they could solicit votes, remember this is about modeling, not rendering

    - Have fun!

Comp closes at 6:00 PM GMT on December 20th.

Just tree ornaments? From Pete's post it sounded like we could do any Christmas decoration. Am I correct?

Another question. Can I spend an unlimited time searching for textures before I start modeling? :bounce:

Nope, I just wanted to paste an image matching the challenge theme and this is what came to mind. I just found the pic on the web.

Nice one Pete! :) I have a couple ideas up my sleeve. I'll try one and then if I get that done, I might go for more of a gag gift. :lol:

Another, quick and easy, making sure the tree has enough variety.

I wanted to make one of my favourite decorations for around the tree, not on the tree, the Christmas Candle Carousel.
But alas 30 minutes was too short, I didn't manage any texture or little figures on the Carousel itself.

Here is what I managed in the time anyway.

This seems to be a simple shape and with these plugins it is indeed not too difficult to model however I remember times before so many and so tricky and nifty plugins existed (well, helix did) and such a shape was not really easy to draw.

Here is an example (although a different shape) from almost exactly 2 years ago - so little time and so many, wonderful plugins!

(and the model is also cool of course)

I'm not sure I'd be able to model it without these plugins,(which s why I wanted to give credit) but with them it was a snap.
The only trick was to have both the helix and the circle (for pushpull) with the same number of sides, and be sure that when you rotate the second helix to line it up with one of the (24 in my case) sides to the circle, otherwise it won't intersect and separate the stripes.

That's indeed very important. :thumb:
